PD Packard specializes in printed decorative papers using primarily the relief technique with many methodical layers of techniques connected by the sense of touch and the sight of color which need to be experienced.
“The book is a particular kind of entity. It is a physical thing made of paper, card, cloth but it is also a site for objects of the mind. It can hold all kinds of marks and modes of signification from texts to diagrams, photographs, and other forms of representation. These trigger constructions of the imagination from language to landscapes. ”
A whole world is hidden behind the abstract images in the work of Caroline Koenders; her prints may seem to be just a collection of black dots but in essence those forms create a silent world that one wants to live in.
